The Watchlist is very useful, but also has shortcomings. When switching the symbol, the tradesymbol doesnt change accordingly. Is there a setting where i can automate the change in the QuoteSymbol?

Another feature to think about: I have chart of different symbols linked together so that i can switch timeframes for all symbols in one klick. I would also like to be able to change the symbol (and quotesymbol) for a single group of charts. Right now i cant do that because i have to choose between symbol or timeframe linked charts. The better way would be: if i change symbol, the all linked charts changes symbol. If i change the time frame of the same chart, then another group of charts changes the tf but not the symbol. So it needs a second link for the same chart and according to the subject changed the link gets chosen.

Can you implement that?

Yes, refer to:
Chart Settings: Trade and Current Quote Symbol (text box) (Chart >> Chart Settings >> Symbol menu)

You can enable both Symbol Linking and Bar Period Linking for a chart at the same time:
Chart Settings: Chart Linking (Chart >> Chart Settings >> Linking menu)

Do i have to adjust the trade symbol in the global symbol settings each time a new contracts trades? Because "MGC?##_FUT_CME" as trade symbol for Gold does not match "?##" with the current quote symbol.

You also did misunderstand me regarding symbol linking. Chart 1 is symbol linked with chart 2,3,4,5 ect. Chart 1 is also time period linked with chart 6,11 and 16. Thats what i am looking for. Because right now this is not possible. Any chart property is linked under 1 link number only.

Yes, you would have to make this update when a new contract comes up.

You also did misunderstand me regarding symbol linking. Chart 1 is symbol linked with chart 2,3,4,5 ect. Chart 1 is also time period linked with chart 6,11 and 16. Thats what i am looking for. Because right now this is not possible. Any chart property is linked under 1 link number only.

It is possible to have different items linked for different charts. Therefore chart 1 can be both Symbol and Time Period linked and then charts 2, 3, 4, 5 can only be Symbol and charts 6, 11, and 16 can be only Time Period. Then when you change the symbol of Chart 1, charts 2, 3, 4, and 5 will change symbol, but when you change the time period only charts 6, 11, and 16 would change time period.

Ok, Thx. Pls give us an option in the symbol settings to permanently link a micro contract as trade symbol to a quote symbol. Maintaining this manually is just hideous. Looks like you have everything in place for that.

We think the Trade and Current Quote Symbol in the Global Symbol Settings should support a pattern. If not we should be able to add that.
